There should be a selector switch where you start the machine. If you have this switch selected to idle and it still doesn't idle down after a few seconds of unloading the generator then you probably have a short in the switch tricking the generator into thinking it's under a load. Any spike in amperage or load will cause the generator to idle up.

250. What causes it to run roughly and lose RPM?


The Miller 212 has a 60% duty cycle. So for every ten minutes of welding the machine is designed to weld for 6 min and cool down for 4 min.

This was made by Miller. It is the same as a Miller Dialarc 250 ac/dc.. Go to www.millerwelds.com, then "service", then "owners manuals" then "search", and scroll down until you find the dialarc.

I have a miller 250 nt, it will stay running when the switch is on run but when i turn the switch to run/idle it runs for a second then cuts off


If you do not have the manual, you can download it for ftee here:
http://www.millerwelds.com/service/ownersmanuals.php?model
Things to check would be make sure the fuel solenoid is functional, and wired to the ignition switch correctly. Also check to make sure idle speed is set correctly. If you can keep it running operating the throttle linkage manually when switched over to run/idle, the linkage itself may not be the correct length or the idle speed is out of adjustment.

Also check for loose wiring to the ignition circuit or bent kill contact.

It might also be some dirt in the carb bowl or low float level. Float should sit level with air horn inverted and just the weight of the float on the inlet needle valve.

Miller bobcat on propane surges when turned to idle


It might be missing a stabilizing spring on the the throttle shaft to eliminate accumulated play in the components.

Otherwise if no smell of leaking LP is noted, there may be a small vacuum leak in the induction system- can be found with carb cleaner on an idling engine- the area of such a leak when sprayed will smooth out the idle and speed it up momentarily.

If you do smell LP, the regulator likely needs repair or a hose needs replacement..

Miller bobcat 250 welder with kohler lp gas engine won't idle properly any adjustments for air/fuel mix?


Make sure that the idle is set at 40Hz. You do this by placing a frequncy meter on one of the 120Vac outlets. If frequency is low, the engine will run rough at idle. There is a 3/8 nut next to carberator that needs to be turned to the right to increase the idle speed.

Miller bobcat 225g plus welding problem


If the idle is not working, then it is either you idle solenoid attached to the carberator or your idle board is bad. If you apply 12Vdc to the idle solenoid is should move, if not then the solenoid is shot, no good. If it works then you idle board is bad. Also, check to see if you are 60Hertz by measuring at the outlet with a frequency meter. I recommend a Fluke meter. You should have 120Vac and 60HZ at the outlet. If the frequency is low then your engine speed needs to be increased. The idle solenoid could be causing all these problems.
